From Eagle crystal to a Masters trophy: 10 prizes players can win aside from a green jacket
The Masters Tournament likes giving away prizes.
The winner receives the ultimate prize – a green jacket – but there are many ways for a player to make the Masters memorable.
From cloth to crystal, the Masters stands alone in tournament golf because no other event provides such an elaborate array of prizes.
The green jacket is the most famous prize in golf, and the custom coat has been awarded to the champion since 1949. The lightweight wool jacket is synonymous with winning at Augusta National Golf Club, but that’s not all the champion receives.
Jacket Facts: 6 things to know about the Masters green jacket
From cloth to crystal, there are many ways for a player to make the Masters memorable. The Masters stands alone in tournament golf because no other event provides such an elaborate array of prizes:

Amateurs who make the cut are eligible to win the silver cup, which goes to the low amateur, and the silver medal that goes to the runner-up.
Players who card a hole-in-one during the Masters tournament receive a large crystal bowl.
A large crystal bowl is awarded to players for double eagle. With only four double eagles in tournament history, it is the hardest trophy to obtain.
The most common way to walk away with a trophy embossed with the Masters logo is to make an eagle. Any player in the field is eligible. From 1954-62, anyone making an eagle received a crystal highball glass. From 1963-2011, a pair of crystal goblets was awarded. Now, a pair of crystal highball glasses goes to those who card an eagle.
7 Day's Low Round
Crystal is also awarded to players for low round of the day (vase).
